Youthpass Unfolded - also for Inclusion Groups

Practical tips and hands-on methods for making most of the Youthpass process. Start using Youthpass with your inclusion group!

'Youthpass Unfolded' is about three things:

  • the Youthpass process in its different phases
  • different methods and tools for making the Youthpass process happen
  • reflections on Youthpass and recognition for inclusion groups

This handbook targets those who are involved in facilitating the learning process of young people in Youth in Action projects: mentors, youth workers/leaders, coaches, trainers...

Youthpass was created in 2007 as the recognition tool for the Youth in Action
programme. Since its introduction, many youth workers and youth leaders have
been developing different ways of supporting young people in their learning within the YiA programme. Youthpass has inspired many people to think about and discuss the topic of learning.

  • What and how do young people learn in the Youth in Action programme?
  • How can youth workers facilitate this process?
  • How can learning gain more recognition?
  • How can we document the competences gained?
  • How can others see the results of all this beautiful work?

'Youthpass Unfolded' takes a closer look at all of these questions and attempts to answer some of them. Special attention is given to overcoming obstacles that some young people might face when it comes to learning. This way, the Youthpass process becomes accessible to all.
